A Monotype demonstration will be held on Saturday, Nov 7th, 12:00 to 3:00 pm at the SAA Gallery, 225 Water St., Exeter, NH. Followed by a 2 days workshop april 16&17 details to be announced. What is a Monotype? Monotype is an intriguing hybrid among printing techniques. It is neither a print nor a painting, but a unique combination of both. The method is named because it is one image (mono), painted or drawn with printer's ink directly on a plate and then transferred to paper. The printing of an image from a clean, un-worked surface results in a quality that is open and free which easily allows innovation. The monotype is a singular image and cannot be replicated. I will be working on small format with the addition of leaves to produce one of a kind card.
